Egyptian Masks

The Egyptians believed in life after death. They put these beautiful masks on their pharaohs when they died so they would look beautiful in their afterlife.

That’s why we made our own original masks.

It might be a good idea to use them for Halloween.

Ancient Egypt – Hieroglyphics

Posted on December 14th, 2011 in zzz ~ Old class blogs by Ms. Whelan  Tagged

The girls in 3rd class have been learning all about Ancient Egypt over the past few weeks. We learned that the Ancient Egyptians were one of the first people to use a type of alphabet to record information. Their alphabet was called Hieroglyphics. Instead of the letters we use, they used smbols that represented each of the sounds. We used the Hieroglyphics to record our names in these cartouches. A cartouche is an oval shape that the Egptyians used to record their names and the names of their pharaohs. We hope you like them!!

Recycled Christmas Decorations

Posted on December 9th, 2011 in Latest News by Mr. Gately  Tagged

We recently held our annual Recycled Christmas Decorations Competition. The number of entries and the standard was the highest ever. If you click on the link below you can see some of the beautiful creations. Well done to everyone for your wonder imaginations and your hard work. 4 of the entries were chosen by an independent artist and those were sent to Wexford County Council Environment Dept. for display in their offices. The chosen decorations were created by Cáit Whitmore in Senior Infants, Clíona Mc Cormack in 3rd, Gia Simmons in 5th, and a group of 6th class girls (Alannah Corcoran, Caoimhe O Sullivan, Ciara Rochford, Clodagh Bruen and Hannah Malone).
